Miss Jorden Martz
Welcome to Grand Prairie West Math! I am so excited to be spending my first year teaching with the Advantage Academy family.
A little bit about myself...
I am a Texan girl through and through! I grew up in Fort Worth and attended school K-12 with the Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District. I graduated from L. D. Bell High School in 2015 with an International Baccalaureate Diploma. I went on to attend Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX where I received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2019. I recently graduated from Texas State University with a Master of Science in Human Development and Family Sciences with a concentration in Child Life. I gained my teaching certification through Texas Teachers and am certified in Core Subjects for grades 4-8. I am beyond excited begin my teacher journey with Advantage Academy.
Working with children has always been a passion of mine. Through babysitting and volunteering at my church, I have served the children of my community in many different capacities. I spent the last year and a half as a gymnastics coach down in New Braunfels, TX while attending graduate school. In this occupation I realized I really enjoyed teaching. After returning to the DFW area I become a substitute teacher first with H-E-B ISD and later Advantage Academy. I absolutely love connecting with students through the classroom and am looking forward to building relationships with my students this year.
